    I have hit over 400 on numerous occasions

    400 lies on numerous occasions?  That's for sure, many times 400!

    And you chickened out of playing me a few years ago too!  Had to 'go away' - that was convenient!

    Sorry Sir, but I don't lie.   Also, I can't believe you would even remember, let alone hold it against me for what you claim - that I chickened out to play you.    I don't remember and I definately don't believe I would have been afraid to play you or anyone else when I was in the prime of my ability.  No one was beating me in those days.. NO ONE.  I will have to look it up to find out the actual number but I do hold the record for most consecutive Match Play wins in a roll.  It was something like 580.   "THEY" say I was the best.  I never said it myself because I am too modest.  I don't like to blow my own horse.

    Scott, playing Cabo many years ago with a driver that was a Master level length I hit across that dogleg right par 4 wind aided, carried right through the fairway and ricocheted off a boulder and ran all the way to the green and left me about a 25 footer for eagle. I am sure I missed it too. They said it was a 410 yd drive. My one and only.   Man, do I miss Cabo and Whistler.  Bob

    While my stats say I have a drive of 400 on the nose it's actually 399.69 yards.  Yes, the damn thing decided not to roll another .31 yards, aka 11.16 inches.  I haven't been close since.  AHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    462 yards. St Andrews 15th. Bounced in between the fairway bunkers, caught a lucky bounce and through the green but still on fairway.

    I'm sure a lot of members had fun with shooting long drives off Cabo's rocky terrain Bob. I personally wasn't a fan of either Cabo or Whistler, but the images still remain at WGT's database...

    ...so never say never. Added you to the list Bob.

    That's annoying, I didn't think to look at the awards page to get the exact distance for those that were listed as 400 yards on their stats page, oh well, more editing to do.  : (

    Indeed Scott. The longest in WGT history to date from my recollection.

    Congrats Douglebogey
